Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport – Journey Time Reliability and Journey Quality Parameter Values
The Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport (DTTaS) engaged a research team from SYSTRA to examine the potential to derive parameter values from available evidence to evaluate journey reliability and quality for all modes of surface transport in Ireland. The outputs of the study will feed into the continued development and updating of the Department’s Common Appraisal Framework (CAF). Our team comprised Irish and international leading experts with extensive academic and consultancy experience.
SYSTRA brought together knowledge of local and global research and best practice together with an understanding of the requirements and tools for conducting transport appraisals in Ireland. Informed by research, and in discussion with DTTaS, the study focused on priority areas of reliability, public transport crowding and cycle quality. Clear and actionable recommendations were made that will enhance the field of transport appraisal in Ireland in the future.
